Marketing, the discipline, has failed to deliver on its promise as a central corporate philosophy because it has failed to adapt its concepts to corporate concerns. Marketing has ignored non‐customer stakeholders and is less influential on corporate strategy than a decade ago.

It is argued that to accomplish this, corporate management must take on a navigational dimension and marketing must make its mix tools relevant above the business unit level.
